These are a few of my favorite things

These are all adjectives that bounce off of my brain every time we receive a new shipment of Lucy Cope.... anything. And yesterday we received a shipment of her matchstrikes. We try to keep some of her amazing glass lamps on the floor at all times, but they are always gone in a flash! Come in quick to pick up one of these beautiful matchstrikes. My-oh-my would someone on your shopping list be happy...
Interesting designs and colors.

Makes a statement- just look at how the light illuminates this gorgeous design.

An array of colors- But they are going fast!!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas....

I don't know about you, but Thanksgiving has come and gone in a whirlwind! And I feel like we just started 2012 only a few months ago. But alas, December is coming and you know what that means.... Santa Claus is coming to Circa!
Please join us on Wednesday, December 5th to welcome Santa in from the North Pole.
Children are welcomed and dogs are encouraged! We will have cookies and crafts to keep everyone happy, while mommy and daddy are allowed to sip on some wine and see what could be on their Circa Christmas list. We hope to see all of you next Wednesday!

From the pages of House Beautiful....

We just got our December/January issue of House Beautiful and spotted a few things that we have in our shop! 

Lee's Bobby McAlpine Spider Back sofa is one of our favorites, too!  It is in our Simply Circa section for $2,600!
Check how good these Visual Comfort lamps look in House Beautiful!  We have a pair at Circa for $450 each.
Coffee table books make great Holiday presents or hostess gifts.  Barbara Barry's book Around Beauty is absolutely beautiful!

Common Grounds: Cornucopia 2012

As we have mentioned in the past, Patrick has become a baking celebrity in Charlotte. All thanks to the hard work of the Common Grounds market (you can read our past post on Patrick's Chocolate Bread Fame here ). Some of you may be aware of the Cornucopia that Common Grounds puts on annually, but if not you surely need to check it out!
This years is taking place Saturday, November 17th from 11:00-3:00 PM
on the front porch of Theis Mortgage (119 Huntley Place).
The Common Grounds cookers are busy, busy creating their specialty treats that are perfect for the holidays. Go by to pick up some easy meals or deserts... you may even find some perfect gifts for this season! Whatever you do- be sure to get close to Patrick's Chocolate Bread. And, if any remains, grab a loaf! You will be VERY happy that you did, I promise!!

Simply a Sneak Peak

We can not wait for yall to come in tomorrow! Seriously- it has taken everything I have (plus some rules put in place by Cindy and Jane) to not buy everything before yall get a chance to see it. The Simply Circa section looks AWESOME (thanks to Cam and Co's hard work)! And MAN are there some deals going on. Please drop by tomorrow morning and have a coffee with us and feel free to stay until lunch! Again, we will be serving gourmet soup and salad in to-go boxes if your work hours force you to run out on us!!! If not, stay and lunch with us!

See you tomorrow, I hope!

Simply Circa

We are so excited to announce that we are launching a new line: Simply Circa. Simply Circa will introduce beautifully crafted and aesthetically pleasing pieces at a lower price point. If your lunch hour permits, we will have a delicious soup and salad to-go-box ready for you to take back to work (or stay and eat with us!), so you are able to peruse the shop and see how these wonderfully priced pieces can blend with your home, while proving that freshening up or re-designing does not have to bury you in credit card debt!
Please come and visit Simply Circa on Thursday, November 8th and be simply blown away.
We can't wait to see you.
**TIDBIT: The meal is being catered by Encore Catering, which is a wonderful non-profit that gives jobs and real life experience to students and alumni of the Community Culinary School of Charlotte. All proceeds go back to the school to help fund the education they are providing to many.
